The plan today was to cycle north along the coast to explore Marina de Nicotera which is apparently 3 km’s away via a cycle path from the campsite. We would then head on along the coast to Capo Vaticano and Tropea to marvel at its dramatic position and captivating prettiness.
We couldn’t find the start of the cycle path despite being provided with a map from the ...
... We had a siesta and then headed to the town. Don bought an espresso and I had a gelato ingliese and creme caramel. We sat with our new friend Nicodemo Agostinos. He had befriended us on FB. Don showed him photos of Australia. Off we walked to the Town hall or municipio. A man coming out of an office said we needed to come back tomorrow to get info on where Don's mum and dad lived in Mammola and where Don's maternal grandmother was buried ...
... souvenirs and panini for our fritters and headed to the montania. Again the roads were narrow, winding and steep. We found a spot to eat and the farmer came out to see what we were doing.

The seaside towns weren't as we imagined. They were very ancient and everyone has a siesta at 1pm. When we arrived near Le Canella we took a wrong turn which we thought was right and headed up into the hills. ...
Don and I were a little nervous about driving in Italy. Especially not knowing where we were going and being on the wrong side of the road. I made sure I got clear directions to get us onto A16 through the streets of Salerno. Phew we made it and no one beeped! Don drove for awhile but after a stop at a roadhouse I took over the driving. It was easier on my nerves than to have sweaty palms and white knuckles with Don at the wheel lol. When Google maps tell you ...
